My 6 month baby woke up today morning with an eye allergy... he is getting tears f on his left eye and its swollen. Please advice on home remedy.

Should be seen: Swelling of the eye can be a periorbital infection, less likely is eye allergy. Especially with only one eye involved and with swelling as you describe. If the area around the eye is red, hot or becoming more swollen you need immediate medical attention for your baby.

Swollen eyes went away and came back. Could they be due to cat allergy?

Swollen eyes went away and came back. Could they be due to cat allergy?

Absolutely: Cat dander is a leading cause of eye allergies. If you experience itching red and swollen eyes during and after exposure to a cat, you are likely allergic. Allergy eye drops and oral antihistamines will improve your symptoms relatively simply, but the best treatment is avoiding exposure to cats.

What can relieve swollen eyes from allergies? Otc eyedrops ok to use?

Eye drops help: There are no real cures for eye allergies, but there are many effective treatments. Over the counter drops like zaditor (ketotifen) work well to control the symptoms. Sometimes you need to treat them with oral medicines like Allegra or zyrtec. See an ophthalmologist if these are not effective.

I wake up with swollen eyes or face a handful of times every month. I have been tested and do not have any remarkable allergies. What could this be?

Something: Allergies to various objects or substances could still be possible. Dust mites? Sheets? Detergents? Soaps? Make up? I would see your doctor for a second consultation since this is persisting. Good luck

Is their any way to reduce swollen eyes in the morning dt allergies, in the mornings I can't breathe, I sneeze, and eyes are very swollen?

Medicine: Are you already using an oral antihistamine? If so, an additional topical antihistamine may help. Cold compresses in the morning and sleeping with your head slightly elevated may also be of some benefit. See your doctor for recommendations of allergy medication is you are not using any.

Always feeling out of breath and have to take deep breaths I have no allgeries but in spring I wake up with swollen eyes what is this?

Always feeling out of breath and have to take deep breaths I have no allgeries but in spring I wake up with swollen eyes what is this?

See doctor: There are many potential causes for being "out of breath" and you need to consult a doctor to find out even though it may be from asthma. The swollen eyes may also be from allergy to tree and grass pollen, but needs to be confirmed by skin testing or blood test. However these two events may or may not be related.

Is there a natural remedy for tired and swollen eyes? Think it may be caused by lack of sleep and too much use of tranquilizer to try to rest. Thanks

Yes, there is!: Diet can make so much difference that you would be able to get rid of the tranquilizer. The worst part of the american diet is all the man made stuff that we were never designed to eat. Eat only god made food. Get rid of all forms of sugar, sweeteners, caffeine, candy, chocolate etc. It sounds like purgatory but that is how we were designed.

Are there any home remedies to treat very sore and swollen eyes?

Certainly: The question is... Why are they sore and swollen. I would suggest you see an eye doctor and get a diagnosis first, then look for at home treatments. There are simply too many things that could cause such symptoms to recommend a cure all treatment.

Can allergies or a swollen eye from allergies increase SED RATE? A week ago my sed rate was 8mm/hr, but after having an allergy attack, it was 13mm/hr

Not significant: The difference is really very small and may just represent the usual fluctuation in ESR and nothing more. Allergy attack is not linked to ESR changes.

I'm on Lexapro (escitalopram) and klonopin for 2 months... I also have allergies. I woke up with a swollen eye. What could cause this?

I'm on Lexapro (escitalopram) and klonopin for 2 months... I also have allergies. I woke up with a swollen eye. What could cause this?

Swollen eye: If you've been on those 2 meds for 2 months, it'd be strange for it to cause a reaction all of a sudden now. Couple things can cause a swollen eye: allergies, trauma (a scratch), a stye, infection (pink eye or cellulitis). Concerning symptoms include significant discharge, pain, and blurry vision. Best of luck to you!

I'm on Lexapro (escitalopram) and klonopin for 2 months... I also have allergies. I woke up with a swollen eye. What could cause this?

Many possibilities: This could certainly be part of an allergic reaction, but unlikely related to Lexapro (escitalopram) or klonopin. Most allergic reactions to medication occur very soon after starting the medication.

Psychotropic meds: It is doubtful that unilateral eye swelling two months into taking these medications was responsible.

Allergies: You would not have this sudden side effect after two months. Thanks so much for asking as those drugs are probably ver important and they are excellent.

I'm on Lexapro (escitalopram) and klonopin for 2 months and have allergies. I woke up with a swollen eye could it just be my allergies or a reaction to pills?

Either: While the swelling could be related to allergies it could also represent a reaction to your medicines. I suggest discussing it with the doctor who prescribed the medicine.

What are treatment options for a swollen eye lid?

What are treatment options for a swollen eye lid?

Swollen Eye Lid: Warm compress, lid scrubs, possibly topical or even oral antibiotics. Most importantly, it is important to find out the reason or etiology of this lid swelling. A thorough and complete ophthalmologic exam is warranted asap. If there is any discharge an eye culture would be reccomended. A history of any concomitant infection is important to know. Recent cold or uri. Do not ignore this. See dr asap!

Spider bite? Swollen eye pain all that side, treatment?

Spider bite? Swollen eye pain all that side, treatment?

Herpes Zoster?: I have seen many patients present with unilateral eruptions they "thought" were "spider bites" or "poison ivy". I would see your eye doc as this sounds like shingles. Herpes zoster ; rx would be indicated.
